I stayed at the Lido twice in November 2009. It is a good budget hotel, and I think its best selling point is its location. It is within the cheaper area of Centro Havana, however only one block back from the Prado and the entry to Habana Vieja (old Havana)
Both rooms were clean; however the first room had a broken air conditioner, and don't expect to get hot water - its really the luck of the draw. I had cold water all five nights, though my husband said he got warmish water a few mornings.
Breakfast was included and fairly good; book early because it is often booked out.
If you are desperate for hot water a safer bet would be a casa particular, but if ou don't mind that it has a lot of other things to offer (the 24 gour bar downstairs is a bonus, and the dinner from the restaurant on 5th floor was good - fish is usually a good bet in Cuba)
